Vaginal odor in women is known as vaginal discharge.
Vaginal discharge is any discharge that occurs from the vagina. It is normal for the vagina to have only a faint vaginal discharge.
If your vaginal odor is intense and persistent, it is possible that you have an infection or sexually transmitted disease. However, a stronger vaginal odor like a “fishy”, “fishy-smelling” odor can also be an indication of a more serious problem. This type of vaginal odor is not a normal vaginal discharge; rather, it is a discharge that does not contain any water at all and has an unpleasant odor.
However, you should be aware that there are other types of vaginal discharge as well and each type has its own characteristic smell.
When you notice a strange vaginal odor, you may think that you are experiencing an infection or sexually transmitted disease. In fact, if you are experiencing this type of vaginal odor, you should seek medical attention immediately. If you do not seek medical attention, the bacteria will cause inflammation and scarring of the area, which will make it very difficult to treat. An infection of the vagina can cause pain during urination and intercourse, itching and bleeding, and even burning and stinging during intercourse. A sexually transmitted disease, such as a herpes infection, can cause pain during intercourse and burning and stinging during urination.
One thing to consider about vaginal odor and sexual health is that a condition like bacterial vaginosis is often confused with the presence of an odor.
Bacterial vaginosis is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that results in an unpleasant vaginal odor and discharge. The discharge is thick and watery and usually appears white or grayish in color.
Women who have bacterial vaginosis have a build up of harmful bacteria in the vagina. They tend to develop a fishy odor as a result of the excessive growth of the bad bacteria in the vaginal area. Women who have bacterial vaginosis are at risk for transmitting the infection to their partner through vaginal contact. It is possible to pass the bacteria from an infected woman to her partner during sex.
This is one of the most common ways that women transmit infections to men.

For example, you should use a good bacterial douche to help kill off any excess bacteria. and eliminate the odor from the vaginal area. You may also want to consider using some natural or homeopathic remedies for a more effective treatment. The use of garlic, yogurt, apple cider vinegar, garlic oil, probiotics, and boric acid can all be beneficial in restoring the pH balance of the vaginal area.
